I want to get the range man but I'm waiting to see if they do an ana-digi triple sensor later, plus I haven't properly figured out my multitool situation for everyday yet so I should probably spend the money and do that first.

I have a Rangeman inbound,  and I am excited.

I went with the black with the positive display,  I was on the fence on which one to get, (the OD green with negative display is sweet!),  but I know black can blend in in a business environment, so I went wit the black.

If it was me I would have picked the same color too :)  I read that people are having visibility issues with the neg display and I felt that the bright yellow for the Japanese limited edition would be too gaudy.

Well my GD350-1B that I just got had a negative display,  and I am very happy with it.   I am super excited to play with the rangeman,

I'm really digging detron's new G  :drool:
It's hard to believe the amount of features crammed into it, but it may well be my next timepiece. I happen to have a whole drawer full of CASIOs; reason being, I think they're the best for the money. I'm nuts about CASIO watches and have been since the first "DataBanks" back in the 80's. I also owned one of the first G's. That was one tough watch!

Anyhow, anyone considering a CASIO watch, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Yay! ooh I like that! My selection is pretty limited. I'm glad they came out with the one I have. Most of the Baby-G watched I see are too girly :)

I won a GW-4000 Sky Cockpit on ebay. I have had a speech from the Missus about buying more watches, but I really like the looks.
I only fear it might be too big for my wrist.

I´ll post a pic or two once it´s here and I can test it out.

Looks like this (I hope)

http://www.ebay.de/itm/CASIO-Uhr-G-SHOCK-mens-watch-GW-4000-1A2ER-Funk-Solar-worldtimer-WR-20BAR-Chrono-/121083418421?nma=true&si=RkYpltcZxUWmcqeI%252BrdWVw3ooYE%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

(Not the one i bought - It was a used one)

This is completely random, but I discovered today where the headquarters for G-shock US is located.  It's right next door to my orthopedic surgeon, here in scenic Dover, NJ!

Nah, just offices.  But today I got myself a little something for being a good boy for the past six years (9 days early, but close enough  ;)  ).  And you gotta support local businesses, right?  :)



G100.  Nice and simple, not too big.  The digital display is a bit difficult to read when the hands are in the way, but that's OK with me.  Very comfortable watch on the wrist as well.  :tu:

Aloha sold me on the Gs. Got a GA100-1a1 for my birthday last week and absolutely love it. Looks great and all the functionality is a total departure from what I'm used to. Makes me smile just looking down at it! :D
I'm a total legend..... in my own mind- Herley

I think that Zed will agree that this is basically Kirk´s fault. :D
Nice wach you got there - I like it for it´s basic design, it has all the functions you need on a regular basic and is quiet indestructible.
I need to get one again - I don´t know why, but I nearly luike teh DW5600E betetr than my solar/atomic GWM5600.

Exactly! and the GWM (atomic solar variant) makes you cycle through all modes each time while teh DW5600E just goes back to timekeeping from every mode.
